Meet The Team
Currently, there isn't a way with which cities can track informal settlements that emerge within megacities when there are surges in population. The NGA is looking for a way in which these settlements may be mapped and tracked so that they may better inform decision makers when presenting data on informal settlements.
During the week of November 9, our group made extensive progress as we were able to apply our knowledge to more physical ways of learning. We created an ARCGIS story map, detailing Jakarta’s informal settlements. As well, we furthered our research on the different levels of development within megacities, specifically informal settlements. There are three different components to development, all which are important to the dynamic as a whole.
Throughout Week 14, the group came together to analyze and discuss the first official draft of our solution. After a lot of consideration we settled on the draft outlined in the presentation below. We were also able to get feedback from our professors on the execution of our solution and are now able to edit our final product to be a comprehensive solution for our stakeholder.
This week the team presented our most comprehensive solution yet. All of our ideas came to fruition in a fully flushed presentation that is viewable in the link below. We received valuable feedback from professors and peers, enabling the team for our final presentation next week. At this stage, we have come to the conclusion that a supervised machine learning solution, using our 4 suggested variables, will enable the NGA and those whom they work with, to effectively, identify, track, and map informal settlements within megacities. At this point, our visual aid has also been completed and is linked below.
This week, the team worked on refining the final deliverables for our sponsor. Additionally, together we decided to come up with a better powerpoint, showcasing our ideas for a solution, as well as creating an executive summary for them to read with it. Analyzing feedback given to us by the instructors and collectively interpreted the information to improve the overall quality of our final presentation. Below we have linked our StoryMap, executive summary, and final presentation. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
